Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Bornean - Refers to the style and period named for the culture of the island of Borneo. The style is noted for its decorative arts, featuring detailed, elaborate body tattoo designs, gilded bangles and medallions showing intricate iconography, beadwork, and armbands adorned with locks of hair or animal tusks and claws, and for its stoneware, featuring brown-glaze jars.
  • carving - The act of shaping, marking, or decorating wood, stone, or another material by cutting or incising, typically using tools such as chisels and other blades. It refers to this process as it is applied to small-scale objects or to objects that are not considered art. "Carving" may also be considered a sculpture technique that is employed in the creation of art.
  • figurines - Three-dimensional works that represent humans, animals, or mythical beasts at less than half life-size. While the term may be used interchangeably with "statuette" in certain situations, it differs in that a statuette is always free-standing while a figurine may be part of a larger work, such as a decorative detail on a candelabra or mirror.
